Perhaps it's the column ruler? It's a visual guide whose purpose is to
help you write your files with a specific maximum width, to make them
readable without horizontal scrolling. For example 80 columns is
common for files that need to be readable in terminal text editors, or
120 is a good width for GUI editors on modern monitors. You can set
the desired with in the solution properties (so everyone using the
solution will have the same width) or set it in the "default policies"
which apply to new solutions.

Or to disable it, in Preferences, uncheck Text Editor->Markers and
Rulers->Show Column Ruler
